Holder of a Ph.D. in chemistry with multi-disciplinary experience in synthetic (organic, inorganic, material chemistry) and analytical chemistry (spectroscopic characterization of materials), in addition to having a teaching diploma. Received a PhD in organometallic chemistry from the University of Rennes1 (France) in November 2012; the work was dedicated to the synthesis and photophysical characterization of luminescent cyclometallated iridium and platinum complexes. After Ph.D., moved to the Laboratory of Catalysis and Spectroscopy (ENSICAEN: National Graduate School of Engineering & Research Center, Caen, France) and worked on different research projects (academic and confidential) as post-doctoral researcher (2013-2015) then as a non-permanent researcher (2016-present) working on: ▪ Preparation and characterization of silver nano-particles supported on zeolite nanocrystals for application in photovoltaic solar cells. ▪ Spectroscopic characterization of supported catalysts using FTIR, Raman and AGIR (combined gravimetry and IR spectroscopy), a confidential project sponsored by Total. ▪ Spectroscopic characterization of metal containing zeolites for oxygen delivery applications. ▪ Investigation of advanced methods for extending car-engine lubricant lifetime (confidential project). ▪Characterization of lamellar materials based on transition metal oxides for liquid phase catalysis. ▪Preparation of new generation of supported catalysts (Confidential project). Beside the experimental work, Moussa is the founder, former president, and current treasurer of the “Cub of young chemists” (Normandy region) of the French Chemical Society and member of “European Young Chemists’ Network ”.
